    Building WM6.5 from RhoStudio

    Chris Misztur

      I installed RhoStudio but I'm having trouble building a project for WM.


      The error is:

      vcbuild.exe : error VCBLD0007: Could not find project configuration RELEASE|WINDOWS MOBILE 6 PROFESSIONAL SDK (ARMV4I) to build.


      I do not have VS2005 so initially my thought was to upgrade the rhodes.sln to VS2008, but after I do that I get 'unspecified error' when trying to view the properties of each project in the solution.


      Has anyone got this working successfully?  I haven't posted to RhoMobile google group yet. I thought to check with you guys first.

      Here is what I have done:



      * Windows 7 64-bit

      * Visual Studio 2008 SP1

      * Visual Studio 2010 SP1

      * .NET 4.0

      * Team Foundation Server 2010 SP1

      * Java JDK 64-bit

      * RhoStudioInstaller1.2.3.exe




      * Visual Studio 2008

      * Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1

      * Visual Studio Team System 2008 Service Pack 1 Forward Compatibility Update for Team Foundation Server 2010

      * Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK Refresh

      * Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Images (USA)

      * Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional Developer Tool Kit (USA)

      * Windows Mobile 6.5.3 Professional DTK



      1.  Install RhoStudio

      2.  Make sure the following are in system PATH

                C:\RhoStudio\redis-2.4.0;C:\RhoStudio\ruby\bin;C:\RhoStudio\devkit\bin;C:\RhoStudio\devkit\mingw\bin;C:\RhoStudio\make-3.81\bin;C:\program files\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\VCPackages;

      3.  Upgrade the C:\RhoStudio\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\gems\rhodes-3.2.2\platform\wm\rhodes.sln to VS2008

                make sure your VS2008 has Visual C++ installed

      4.  Start RhoStudio from command prompt


      5.  Create a new workspace

      6.  Go to Eclipse preferences and set Rhomobile Java path

                C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.6.0_29/bin

      7.  Go to Eclipse preferences and set Rhomobile\Windows Mobile Cab wizard path

                C:/Program Files (x86)/Windows Mobile 6.5.3 DTK/Tools/CabWiz

      8.  Create a new Rhodes application

      9.  Set run configuration to Windows Mobile and build to device
